Searching for HeadHunter roles? Then let Careers in Recruitment be the website to guide you through some of the requirements for the role and what to expect when applying for your next Headhunter role.
Headhunters are charged with the task of finding talented people that would be the best to work for your clients. Doing your research is essential, you've got to really understand what the client is looking for and find the right candidates who match their requirements.
On a daily basis you'll be talking to clients and researching to shortlist people that you think would fit the role. Working hard you'll be expected to negotiate fees and salaries between your client and the individual, aswell as interviewing top candidates.
Your role could fit into various employment agencies who will deal with a wide range of commercial or office jobs. You'll deal with both temporary and permanent work at all levels for every industry sector.
You're in an hard working industry so often your hours will be 9am-6pm for monday-friday. Many workers start off in a single industry to become familiar with its dynamic, before becoming head hunters for that sector, seeking out talent using the contacts and knowledge they have acquired over time. Although it will be heavily desk based, there could be opportunities to travel to meet and search out the best talent and employers. Within the UK we've got thousands of recruitment agencies, but if you concentrate on a specific niche or expertise you can work in a specialist agency.With experience and working in larger companies, promotion is possible for you to move into business development or management.
As a head hunter your salary may only start at around £15,000 - 18,000. But this can soon move onto £20,000 - 40,000 based on your experience and success.
